When You Reach A Crossroad

So, what happens when you reach a crossroad?  

God is Bigger!

Encouragement For You Today

 Photo Credit  via Compfight cc God is real. When He says, “Seek Me, and you’ll find Me,” He’s not just taking us on a game of cat and mouse. Rather, He’s inviting us into fellowship. He’s inviting us to sit, walk, talk, and move with Him. He’s inviting us into a greater understanding of His […]

Take One Step Forward. Cultivate Your Land.

Years ago I was intimidated by the idea of creating a beautiful space to call home. It was my desire, but I just didn’t know how. This was especially challenging as we went through difficult and financially trying times, including over 7 layoffs. Seriously?! Some people don’t experience that many layoffs in a lifetime, let […]

The Gospel Which Unites Us

I sat quietly in the car pondering what I had heard. My husband was doing the driving which made it easier for me to get lost in thought. A question was asked, “Have you ever worked hard to earn something?” I listened to the woman sharing how she always had what she needed. She never lacked […]

Joy In Our Sorrow

Pondering on “joy” today.   Because life is difficult sometimes and even finding a smile for the day becomes a challenge. As my pastor shared in his sermon this Sunday, sometimes the proper response to injustice, to suffering, to grief, to evil is–to simply weep.   In her book, Dancing With My Father, my sweet mentor, […]

Entrusted, God Meets You In “This” Place

About six weeks ago I began Beth Moore’s Bible study, Entrusted. I opened the study with both excitement and a sense of urgency. We were immediately introduced to Paul’s vulnerable heart, and his faithful words to Timothy, his “beloved son”. The challenge was laid before us. We set out with an “enormous goal”–to be “mighty servants of […]

Faithfulness, It’s What God Asks Of Us

I love Mary Cassatt’s work. She does such a beautiful job of portraying the sweetness and innocence of childhood, and the beauty of motherhood. So much so, that during our picture study time (we’ve been going through several of Cassatt’s works in the past weeks) my daughter remarked, “She must love children!”   Her thoughts […]
